Best Dining for Vivid Sydney 2018

Sydneys favourite (and brightest) Winter festival Vivid Sydney, a festival about lights, music and ideas, hits our shores for 2 weeks lighting up our skies and dissolving our Winter blues.  There are so many events on as part of the Vivid Sydney festival, but as usual we’re most interested in the ones that involve eating and drinking!

We’ve rounded up our top spots to enjoy a meal with Vivid views this year.

  • MCA
    The MCA is always at the heart of the Vivid action and will be hosting a Bombay Sapphire pop up bar on the MCA Rooftop Terrace.  Offering sweeping Vivid views along with glowing gin infused cocktails.
